Ding, dong bell, Pussy's in the well! Who put her in? Little Tommy Lin. Who pulled her out? Little Johnny Stout. What a naughty boy was that To drown the poor, poor pussy-cat Who never did him any harm
But killed the mice in his father's barn.
I like little pussy, her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her she'll do me no harm;
So I'll not pull her tail, nor drive her away,
But pussy and I very gently will play.
